Ok explain to me how they wound up in these pots and not in my other pots. I would understand if I had a bunch of them in my other pots. I never had a bunch of grass growing in one pot and grow under peat moss which is very acidic.

Once it gets old enough it will flower, therefore will be easier to ID, but I’m telling you, it will just be some common wetland grass lol.

The acidity of the peat moss/sphagnum makes no difference...it is a grass/sedge species that grows in bogs.

Why didn’t it grow in other pots? Well it’s likely that the entire bag wasn’t covered with seeds, but they just happen to be in the part of the Sphagnum you currently used. Essentially just random chance.

The other reason why I believe it’s the seeds is, b/c they were darker and a bit smaller than the new batch of seeds I just received and the seed was attached to the bottom of the plants root, which was hard to tell at the time wether it was a root or not.

Here are the sedges that pop up in my pots. To me, it looks exactly like yours - https://imgur.com/a/uZeLy1A. If your's flowers like this we will know without a doubt. (Not that there needs to be any doubt currently though).

bad idea, the roots on sedge are aggressive and the cobra lilies will have a harder time growing among them, especially seedlings.... Just run a water pump over the top. Sedge will not provide enough shade to make a difference anyways.

Ok I’ll definitely take your advice and see exactly what these are.
